Best of Gilroy 2022

Voted the best

Through painstaking deliberations and difficult decisions, the community voted for their favorites. Now, in this issue, we unveil the winners of the annual Best of Gilroy awards.

Readers had the chance to vote for a variety of businesses, organizations and more through an online ballot that was live for a month. With more than 100 categories to consider, at least 20 selections

had to be made in order for the ballot to count.

We received numerous entries, with the community telling us their favorite places to eat, where to shop, what they like to do on the weekend and more.

The results show many old favorites have once again reclaimed their titles, but plenty of others have been voted the best for the first time.

Best food & drink

FILLING MEAL Prawns scampi pasta with a side of garlic bread and an iced Sprite is part of Old City Hall Restaurant’s menu.

The iconic downtown Gilroy landmark is a great place to bring the whole family, even those who have paws, according to Best of Gilroy 2022 voters.

Voters named Old City Hall Restaurant the Best Family Restaurant, Best Kid-Friendly Restaurant and Best PetFriendly Restaurant in this year’s poll. It’s even the place to belt out your favorite pop songs, as it was also named the

Best Family Restaurant: Old City Hall Restaurant

Best Karaoke spot in Gilroy.

Co-owners Fran and Bobby Beaudet opened the restaurant a little more than a decade ago at the corner of Monterey and Sixth streets in the Flemish-inspired 1905 building that once was the City of Gilroy’s base of operations.

The menu touts a variety of dishes focusing on California coastal cuisine, featuring breakfast, lunch and dinner options.

I would like to take a moment and send out a “BIG” heartfelt Thank You to all my amazing clients, friends and family that voted for me.

With over 21 years of experience, I have a passion and a talent for this work, that I love. Repeat clients and referrals make up nearly all my business, and I attribute the loyalty of my clients to my attentiveness of their needs. “It’s about compassion for what they are going through”. As their real estate broker, I am with them during one of the most stressful times in their lives. For me, customer service is all about being their advocate, and being a bulldog negotiator when I have to be.

With an eye for design and staging along with a team of experts to help with home renovations, I believe that every property can be sold as a renovated property. Through an exclusive contract with Cottage Flooring –Ana Guerrero and our own Staging and Interior Design company SALVAR Interior Design, I’m able to offer my clients access to home renovations and staging that often increase the value of their property, at no up-front cost to my clients.

As a wife, mother and local community member I believe in giving back to the community I live and work in as a board member of the Latino Family Fund and the Class of 2022 Leadership Gilroy, I look forward to helping our community grow.

Please feel free to contact my team and I for all your Real Estate needs – Whether you’re buying or selling, or have real estate market questions we are here for you!

Thank You for Voting Me, TINA TOVAR the BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT in GILROY 2022! When you’ve found the right home for the right family, the gratitude is an amazing feeling.

Best Farmers Market: Gilroy Farmers Market

COLORFUL FRUIT Castellanos Farm offers oranges, peaches and more at its booth at the Gilroy Farmers Market in 2021, located in the Gilroy Premium Outlets every Saturday.

Best Dance Studio: Lana’s Dance Studio

Even for an accomplished dance organization as Lana’s Dance Studio, what it did in the 2022 Kids Artistic Revue Nationals Dance Finals in Anaheim June 26-July 1 was nothing short of impressive.

Out of the 50-plus studios competing, Lana’s was the only one that had dancers reach the finals in all eight categories. They also ranked first overall in wins and won Studio of the Year and Choreographer of the Year.

Lana Wright is in her 44th year as the owner/director of the studio which has facilities in Morgan Hill and Gilroy.

Since Lana’s Dance Studio opened, dozens of its

alumni have gone on to work all over the world, whether in Hollywood, Broadway, or New York City. Many of them have gone on to compete for a four-year collegiate program.

However, Wright said it’s the relationships she values the most.

Eight of the 10 members of her working staff danced at the studio.

“I feel very blessed to have the relationships with my staff and how we have the same goal of wanting the kids to learn, have fun and always improve,” she said. “It’s phenomenal when you take a step back and see how many kids’ lives you’ve touched. You hope their experience here has made a difference in their lives.”

Best Local Band: JJ Hawg

2022 If there’s a party to be had, JJ Hawg will be there.

JJ Hawg is a trio composed of James Avena (guitar/vocals), John Diaz (bassist) and John Michael (drums). They’ve been together since the early 2000s. The band covers a wide range of musical territory, and plays songs such as “Johnny B. Goode” by Chuck Berry and “Purple Rain” by Prince, along with their own original material.

“I grew up on a lot of country with my uncles,” Avena said in

The trio is a staple at the Downtown Live Music Series, as well as regulars at various restaurants and clubs throughout the South Valley and beyond.
